Myton, Ut. On 1/20/24, an officer working with the Safe Trails FBI Task Force was in the Myton area when he saw a vehicle acting oddly at the gas station.
The vehicle moved, and then a person walked up and got into the driver's seat, appearing that the passenger moved the vehicle. A check of the vehicle's plates showed it had no insurance.
BIA Officer White made a traffic stop on the vehicle at the Myton car wash, and the driver was identified as 24-year-old Whitney Jean Long. The front passenger was identified as 43-year-old Beau Jeffery Goodrich. Beau showed he had two statewide warrants, and Whitney showed she had a suspended license and must have an interlock device on all vehicles she drives.
A K9 was used to do a free air sniff around the vehicle and alerted on the car. The Officer working the dog could smell a strong odor of marijuana coming from inside the car. Both occupants were asked to exit the vehicle for a search.
Beau was patted down, and his phone was in his back pocket with the screen open. The Officer pulled the phone from his pocket and noticed something was still in his back pocket. When the item was pulled out, it was a piece of tin foil with burnt residue.
A search of the vehicle was conducted, and several items of marijuana were found. A THC vape was found in the driver's door next to Whitney. Marijuana was found in a pair of coveralls on the backseat. During a further search of the vehicle, meth was located in the dome light with two glass pipes with white residue in them consistent with meth.
Beau and Whitney were arrested, and while searching Beau’s coat after he was placed under arrest, a clear glass pipe was found in the front upper pocket with a white residue in it.
